11x8.5 alcohol inks on wax paper done today; drew the sparrow yesterday with black Sharpie and Micron 05 pens. After tearing a sheet of wax paper I crumpled it up, smoothed out, then crumpled again. The ink didn't spread as rapidly as it has done on slick surfaces so it was easier to manage. To paint it I put a white sheet of wc paper behind so it could be seen. Below are the few supplies needed for this simple batik-appearing work. My original sketch was placed under wax paper to trace again. Also used a wooden chopstick laid on its side to spread inks. A white gel pen used around the sparrow's eye.
